Opponents, Advocates Lobby on Gay Marriage at State Capitol

Cynthia Nixon & Sean Avery at the State Capitol

WXXI Capitol Bureau Correspondent Karen DeWitt reports advocates and opponents of gay marriage worked the halls of the Capitol Tuesday, as the State Senate stands just two votes shy of proving same sex marriages in New York.

Karen's story includes how advocates pulled in New York Rangers star Sean Avery and actress Cynthia Nixon to lobby for gay marriage.

Opponents say Senate Republicans, if they allow a vote for the bill to pass, are walking away from their core values.
